Amid the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the world’s bureaucrats, financial institutions, multinational corporations, and international organizations started promoting the Great Reset concept, an idea launched by the World Economic Forum (WEF) that claims to bolster a greener and fairer world. A lot of people around the world have voiced their disapproval for the Great Reset concept since it was promoted more in that year than before. To combat misinformation, fact-checkers were sent to social media platforms to check the controversial topic. Today, various people still condemn Great Reset content on social media and chastise the establishment that’s been conveying the message.
The Now-Deleted ‘You’ll Own Nothing, and You’ll Be Happy’ WEF Tweet From 2016
If you follow the news and pay attention to economics and politics, you’ve probably heard about the Great Reset and the phrase “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy.” Many people connect the Great Reset and the phrase to the World Economic Forum (WEF), an independent international organization founded by Klaus Schwab. That’s because WEF tweetedIn November 2016, there were approximately eight predictions about the year 2030.
The tweet and the “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy” quote stems from an opinion editorialIda Auken (Danish MP) wrote it. Then, years later amid the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, there was a big Great Reset push from the WEF and Schwab published a book called: “Covid-19: The Great Reset.”
The concept talks of a stream if political shifts and the creation of an egalitarian, post-Covid 19 world. The WEF is not the only promoter of the Great Reset idea as the 23rd and current prime minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, has backed the idea and U.S. president Joe Biden has also been accused of endorsing the Great Reset concepts via his “Build Back Better” program.
A website called greatreset.com promoting the idea has caught people’s attention and the publication TIME magazine published a collection of Great Reset editorials that endorse the theme. The WEF founder stated in a June 2020 article that the public sector must join the movement.
“Clearly, the will to build a better society does exist,” Schwab wrote. “We must use it to secure the Great Reset that we so badly need. It will be necessary to have stronger and more powerful governments. But this does not mean that we should push for greater government size. And it will demand private-sector engagement every step of the way,” the WEF founder adds.
The ‘Insane Great Reset’ Disparaged by Critics, Newly Created International Liberty Forum Aims to Push Back Against the Great Reset
To this very day, a great number of people are very much against the WEF’s Great Reset idea, and the subject has been commonplace on social media since the end of 2020. Last year, fact checkers were deployed to social media sites like Twitter, and a Reuters Fact Check report claimed: “The World Economic Forum does not have a stated goal to have people own nothing and be happy by 2030.” Despite statements like these and the establishment fact checkers, many observers believe the Great Reset is a collectivist’s agenda.
